The Biostar

As I've mentioned previously, ArborOne is a proud member of the Farm Credit System. We share the concepts; we also share the biostar.

Almost all associations and organizations with ties to Farm Credit incorporate the biostar in some way – either in their logo or tagline.

So what exactly is a biostar and what does it represent you might wonder.

The biostar is the result of a national effort in the mid-80’s to bring all the various entities recognized as part of Farm Credit under one identifiable symbol – including all the Federal Land Banks and Production Credit Associations.

The design of the biostar is very deliberate, with each element representing something about Farm Credit.

  • The leaves represent the system entities including the Farm Credit associations, the Farm Credit Banks and our national support structures like the funding and services corporations.
  • The roots represent the grassroots support or our members and our roots in rural America and the cooperative system.
  • The star represents light and direction.
  • The color ‘green’ represents the rural nature of our business – which is a green and growing industry that we serve.

Having just celebrated the 4th of July holiday, I would be remiss to not mention the importance of farmers, ranchers and agriculture in the forming of the United States. The tradition of the family farm and the values born in that tradition, are reflected in the founding documents that guide our Country still.

ArborOne Financial, a proud member of the Farm Credit System, always.
